Reasoning among Africans especially Nigerians on social media can be qualified with one word – pathetic!
Within the period of 30 days, I’ve tried to engage different sets of people from Nigeria and beyond. One of the repeated issues I run into is an annoying echo of unguarded emotions, absence of substantial logic, brusque utterances and in some situations, grisly ethnic spat.
There’s a difference between what you think, what you want and what really exist or at least obtainable. Things do not exist or happen because you want them to be, the only place things does exist out of one’s wish is in a dreamland. Let me break this “sad” news, dreamland is a dreamland, real life is real life.
I’ve on many occasions urged our young ones to leave social media even for a moment, pay a humble visit to their library and search out some answers.
The reason why Africa has become a laughing stock to the rest of the world today is because we have young people that don’t want to ask questions on what happened in the past, what is happening today and the direction the society is heading to.
They senseless of our young ones has been like a void of reasoning on a loop.
Slightest political standpoint and topic will introduce an array of people that sometimes you wonder if they are characters from one archaic comic strip.
Differ with their reasoning with your clear logic and hear them curse your whole generations, void on a loop!
Our greedy old men are running our society down to the pit of the toilet because we have young men who live in a dreamland, reason like brain-damaged victims and are ready to defend their stupidity.
A society that doesn’t have youths who are ready to reason like meaningful humans, make a stand and take a stand is on its way to oblivion.
I’ve said it before and will say it again, things does not exist out of our wish. There’s a whole difference between wishful thinking and real life.
The difference between reality and dreamland is not even a gap but a chasm.
The earlier we understand the above the more sense we made to the meaningful people that live in the realm of realities.
